Your wedding is one of the most important and special days of your life, and one which you share with your family and closest friends. A truly amazing aspect of my work is that I am a part of it too and, as much as I am 'working', weddings are always a special day to me which I always enjoy.
Whatever your theme, whatever your dress, your wedding day hairstyle provides a fabulous opportunity to make a statement. Perhaps you have a minimal gown and a simple, chic wedding in mind, and wowing your guests with a striking and unique bridal hairstyle is a great way of adding elegance and originality to your style.
From January 2017 I will be working from a hair salon studio based in a log cabin I have had built in my garden and the trial appointment can be held there.
When planning your wedding, think about booking the wedding hair trial at least two months in advance of the wedding. This gives plenty of time for the hair to grow if necessary or, to source extensions (if used) and, most importantly, knowing you are happy with the style chosen and being able to tick it off the 'to do' list in good time.
Before you have the trial, try to collect some pictures that show styles you do like and those you don’t.
For the trial appointment, it is recommended to have your veil, tiara/s and/or hair accessories so we can perfect the look you want on your wedding day. If you are not sure what you want and don't yet have these, that is not a problem, I have lots of ideas and suggestions to help you in your decision. When your hair is finished, and you are happy with it, I take photographs for reference. Brides to be often like me to take images on their phones too so they can show family and friends. We can then discuss what styles the rest of the bridal party are having and work out an itinerary which I email to you for your agreement.
It is not always necessary for your bridesmaids or mum to have a trial. As long as I know what style they require and you have a picture of their hair as it usually is, that is fine. It is useful if they have picture of the style they would like, as it helps me with working out the time I need for the itinerary.
Once we have achieved your perfect wedding hairstyle, we can make final arrangement for the day itself.
Generally, the hair trial is up to 2 hours and is priced at £75.
The complete hair and make up package is available and I work alongside Amelia MUA who offers fabulous make up services for the bride.
